Independence National Historical Park

Known as the birthplace of American democracy, Independence National Historic Park includes the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Congress Hall, New Hall Military Museum, Franklin Court, Bishop White House and the Graff House.

Independence Hall

Liberty Bell

The Bell was cast in the 1700's in Philadelphia for the State House (Independence Hall) and was used to call the Pennsylvania Assembly to meetings. The bell's inscription "Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the Inhabitants thereof" made it a symbol of freedom and has historically been embraced by abolitionists, suffragists and Civil Rights advocates. It continues to be a symbol of American strength today.

Liberty Bell

Betsy Ross House

Travel back in history to learn more about Betsy Ross and the American Flag. During your visit you can talk to Betsy herself, explore her upholstery shop and home where she sewed the first flag, and see her basement where she made musket cartridges for the Continental army. Betsy Ross House is a short walk from our downtown hotel.

Continental Flag

City Hall

When taking in Philadelphia's history, don't forget to visit City Hall, also a national historic landmark and steps from our hotel. The largest municipal building in the country, City Hall has been Philadelphia's government headquarters for more than 100 years. Visitors can get a view of the city from the observation deck, which sits below the 37' bronze statue of William Penn (founder of Philadelphia) that is atop the building's clock tower.

The Rocky Statue and the Rocky Steps

Reading Terminal Market

Step outside the hotel and experience this historic farmer's market, located right across the street. The Market is the nation's oldest continuously operating farmers' market where you can enjoy virtually every type of cuisine. Today it is known as one of the greatest public markets in the country.

Italian Market

Fashion District

Fashion District Philadelphia will deliver a robust retail and entertainment offering unlike any other in downtown Philadelphia. Spanning three city blocks, it will feature over 800,000 square feet of dynamic offerings, including flagship, traditional full price, off-price and branded outlet retail, destination dining and entertainment, along with public art and evolving cultural events. With a prime location in Center City, Fashion District Philadelphia is just steps away from Philadelphia's historic district and connected to Reading Terminal, the Pennsylvania Convention Center and SEPTA's Jefferson station - offering convenience and accessibility for millions of Philadelphia residents, commuters and visitors.

Valley Forge

Located 20 miles outside of Philadelphia, this was the base camp for the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War in the winter of 1777-1778. Today it is a national park with monuments, statues and buildings, and more than 3,600 acres of rolling hills and walking trails. Throughout the year there are a variety of activities, including ranger programs, guided tours, and living history demonstrations.
